Don't turn your back

Have you ever worked in an environment where everything seems like it is going great, and suddenly you find a knife in your back?

You look around, and everyone is acting like no one saw nothing.

And you don't know who to trust any more?

Are there people where you work you'd never turn your back on?

Good grief. I've only got about 300. That's the nice thing here, no matter how bad things might be, it's always worse for someone else.
Thanks. You've made me feel better.

Yes I quit my last job partly because I heard people mimicing the way I speak.

They mimic my speech here and even gave it a name. When I'm insecure I throw up a cloud of words to hide what I'm really thinking and feeling. "The man who speaks with Clouds"
Do you sing? Singing is an interesting thing comes from a different part of the mind. There was this guy, Jim Nabors, very southern voice, but he could also sing like Pavorotti.

There is nothing worse than doing your job...working your butt off...and then getting stabbed in the back! I left my last nursing job because of that environment.

And we really need nurses!!! So sad. Sometimes I wonder how humans achieved civilization since cooperation isn't one of our species stronger traits.

Yeah... i'd never turn my back on my Mgr. or my Asst. Mgr. The co-workers I trust. But then about half of them are looking for a new job same as me. (The ideal goal: We all find new jobs and put our 2 week notices in on the same day).

puntachueca replies on 6/13/2006 7:08 pm:
I'd love to see that!!! here we have political types who are always schemeing to do each other in, and the staff takes sides, trying to survive. Plus, they like to hit you by surprise and secretly, so you never know who is where. The politicians offed one of my key guys, no warning, left me with a huge mess, demoralized staff, everyone wanting to quit.
Spent the whole day picking people up off the floor and getting them going again.

a year and a half ago three of my friends and i started working on a sculptoric garden , it has to be one of the hardest things i´ve ever done , from chosing the scultures to getting the space donated and afterwards dealing with the contratist and all kind of stuff......... well the whole thing was ment to be donated to the arts school i went to and all four of us would do so in a small ceremony , and we did, but several months later one of them went behind our backs and took all the credit and even got a great job presenting the project as her own , we spoke to her and she claims it was all her idea and we were just her "assitants" and since she kept all of the bills and paperwork.........well we have nothing to show for all the hard work , the worst part is that she destroyed the sculptures and put her own , so now it is "Ontiveros sculpture garden " and she is the new PRINCIPAL of the school

Hire a bruja to fix her.
What is it with scultpure'd think they would bring out the best in people. I was involved with one, and similar problem. Most of the sculptors finally got pissed and emptied their stuff out. The promotor just wanted to have a nice place on her property, and had no point of sale. She got a lot of publicity, though. One of mine is still there, trashing up the place. I keep getting notices to remove it.

Yes! But not because I was not good at my job, but because I am not into "hanging with the Click Group" and I prefered to be alone during my lunch hour. I now do not have to worry about it any more, I am my own boss.

Thanks for visiting. I hear you about being your own boss. I just wasn't good at giving myself vacations....
